The first reason I will not re-enlist is all the bad conditions. I am sick because of the poor/nasty cookery. I am out of humor, all the men are! All of the 12 men in my hut are getting more sick with the smoke from the fire. On December 21, I heard a general yell “No meat!” “No

Valley Forge Would You Quit? George Washington and his continental army were staying at a winter camp in Valley Forge in very bad conditions from December 1777 to June 1778. These “summer soldiers” are leaving, but some are staying loyal. If you had been at Valley Forge would you quit? I would quit because only 15% of people are dying, there is help on the way and because of the inspirational words of Thomas Paine from the “American Crisis”.

From the winter of 1777 to 1778 Valley Forge was in very harsh weather conditions. During this time we took command with George Washington and after a while war started. Some interesting facts are that in 1773, 310 street lights were installed. In 1783, the Treaty of Paris ended the Revolutionary War, and in 1782 the writing of the Constitution was in progress. I have decided not to re-enlist for these three reasons which are, sickness, conditions and clothing, and congress/ leadership.

Valley Forge DBQ Thousands have already died. The weather is getting unbearable. Beginning in December of 1777, George Washington’s army set up a terrible camp known as Valley Forge hoping to train to continue the fight against the British. The winter of ‘77 was unbearably cold, and the soldiers began to lose hope. If you were a Continental Soldier spending the winter at Valley Forge, would you have left the army? I would have quit at Valley Forge because the conditions were miserable, there was no supplies, and too many soldiers became ill.
What would you do if you were a soldier under command of General Washington in valley forge in the winter? Would you stay or leave? The army has been at Valley Forge, PA for the whole winter, and some have quit and some have re-enlisted. I would not have re-enlisted because of the fact that I missed my family and I want to get back to them.
Battle is a struggle by itself, which I expected, but the brutal conditions and the yearning in my heart to see my family are only making the war worse. George Washington has lead us to Valley Forge. This is where we set up our winter camp. Most of the six and nine month men have decided not to reenlist. I have decided to join them. In case I am questioned I have three very clear reasons to not reenlist. These being, my chances of survival are slim to none, the whole army lacks clothes and food, and there is almost no protection from the elements.
Valley Forge: Would you have stayed? Pride is the best way to describe the feeling and anxiety of us soldiers: we feel confident that our cause is worth fighting for. The Valley Forge army was supported and cared for by the Congress men which made some soldiers stay. Many of the soldiers were ill, but still had the perseverance to keep fighting. Valley Forge soldiers battled through difficulties of war. We know that life at Valley Forge was rough, but it did not change the fact that this war is worth fighting for. I have decided to re-enlist for three reasons which are: I am fighting for freedom, some soldiers were happy, and the soldiers were motivated to keep fighting.
The conditions are tough but I still need to stay. As said in “American Crisis” by Thomas Paine “ These are the times that try men’s souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in time of crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he that stands it now, deserves the love of man and woman.” (Doc.D). Also in Dr. Waldo’s journal it talks about how the soldiers are still cheerful even through these tough times. “...Now begins to grow sickly from the continued fatigues they have suffered this campaign. et they still show a spirit of alacrity [cheerful willingness] and contentment not to be expected from so young troops.”(Doc.C). These show that even through tough times we will stay fight willingly because we are fighting for our country. I believe in the cause I'm fighting for so why would i quit. I will keep fighting until we have gotten our independence or untill I die. I'm no summer soldier, I will fight even when it gets tough, and I deserve love from man,woman and my country. I will reenlist because I'm not a summer soldier and i support the cause I'm fighting
